Discover Songs


Now, something a little different. Many of you listen to Web program ALL SONGS CONSIDERED. Host Bob Boilen premiers never-before heard music. Well, this morning we decided to grab the debut from Bob. We've got some brand new music from the band Arcade Fire. Their sound is popular with indie rock fans. Here's the band's new single, "Month of May." I should warn you, if you're not awake yet, you will be. This is rock and roll.

(Soundbite of song, "Month of May")

Mr. WIN BUTLER (Singer, Arcade Fire): (Singing) Going to make a record in the month of May, in the month of May, in the month of May. Going to make a record in the month of May with a violent wind (unintelligible). Month of May is a violent thing. In the city there's hot dog stand and some came to see me (unintelligible). (unintelligible), the violent winds wash away. (unintelligible).

GREENE: That's the song "Month of May," from Arcade Fire. You can hear the rest of that song and the premiere of a second song today on ALL SONGS CONSIDERED. Host Bob Boilen will chat with the band about the making of its new record. Just head to at noon, Eastern Time today.
